15 things you don't know about me

I admittedly stole this post idea from Heather over at Live.Love.Laugh.  Check it out. 

15 things you don't know about me...or maybe you do.

1.  I don't eat anything that has a pit in the middle of it.  *shudder*

2.  At the end of every work day, all papers on my desk have to be in a pile and the pile has to be as straight as the edge of the desk.

3.  When I need to de-stress, I clean.  Everything.

4.  I love to play music REALLY loud when I drive. 

5.  When I want something immediately like a new skirt or a Halloween costume, I will obsess and drive to as many stores as it takes to find it THAT day.

6.  I used to be thousands of dollars in debt until Eric told me he wouldn't marry me until I cleared it.  Took me less than a year to clear it.

7.  After a summer of working in Alaska, I came home, weighing as much as a polar bear.  Well, not really.  More like a teen polar bear.

8.  I changed my major in college 7 times.

9.  I have recieved three tickets - one for blowing through a stop sign, two for speeding.  All three occurred when my mind was pre-occupied by a tragedy or worry.  I didn't fight any of the tickets.  Nor do I think I should have gotten them but that's another story...

10.  I knew the night of our first date that I would marry and spend the rest of my life with Eric. 

11.  I once had a total breakdown watching Battlestar Galactica.  The cyborg could get pregnant but I couldn't.  Needless to say, I was a little emotional during the infertility phase of life.

12.  Seven years ago, I joined a pregnancy forum and became close friends with six women.  I have only met two of them, have never been in the same place with all of them, but love them as dearly as my friends who I see and talk to all the time.  They were my lifeline during that somewhat emotional infertile time in my life.

13.  I often make fun of people when I shouldn't.  It isn't nice.  It doesn't make me a better person.  But I love to do it, even if the thoughts stay in my head.

14.  I don't like to miss out on a social event, knowing others are having fun without me.

15.  I'm 7 lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight and most days, I don't care if I lose them or not.


  1. As if we haven't discovered enough evidence that we would be BFFs in real life, this list just seals the deal. Love that you compared yourself to a polar bear. I had to wear a blue dress when I was 9 months pregnant and I compared myself to a beluga whale. Also, #11 made me laugh out loud and then shed a tear at the same time because having someone very close to me going through this...I can TOTALLY understand how that would happen. And finally, #13 is so me. I don't want to do it. I feel bad when I do. But I can't help myself, especially when it comes to my mom :-)

  2. I already knew number 12! Right back at you my gorgeous friend and one of these days we WILL all be in the same place!!

    I LOVED learning all these things about you! S x


What say ye?
